“To Bush & Co…. we the people owe no more allegiance than a child owes to the criminal who stole her from her home and now abuses her while posing as her father.” — Mark Crispin Miller
Propaganda is a sprinter, but truth is a long-distance runner.
And at last, the truth may be overtaking the propaganda and the lies.
In the new edition of his riveting book, Fooled Again, Mark Crispin Miller describes a public groundswell that should have Bush, Cheney and the Busheviks very worried.
Truth, having been ground to earth, is rising again.
Despite compelling statistical, circumstantial, anecdotal and eyewitness evidence that two presidential and numerous congressional elections have been stolen, this evidence has been discounted, ignored and ridiculed by the mainstream media and, amazingly, by the victimized Democratic Party and its defeated candidates and even by some progressive publications.
Even so, a sizeable and growing portion of the American public isn’t buying the official and bi-partisan assurances that the US elections are, by and large, on the level, and that the Bush/Cheney regime is therefore legitimate. For example, an August, 2006 Zogby poll reports that only 45% of the population is “very confident” that Bush and Cheney won re-election “fair and square” in 2004. About a third were “not at all confident.”
In the “Afterword” to Fooled Again, comprising one hundred pages of new material, Miller chronicles the determined and persistent resistance of “official Democrats” to the very idea that they were the victims of massive election fraud. Astonishingly, progressive publications (yes, there are still a few), such as The Nation, Mother Jones, and the liberal websites, TomPaine.com and Salon.com, have all published caustic articles debunking thoroughly researched and scrupulously argued accusations of election fraud. Familiar ad hominem rebuttals are trotted out: “get over it,” “sore losers,” “conspiracy theorists.” Far more often, the fraud issue is denied even the dignity of mention and rebuttal. With the noteworthy exception of Catherine Crier and Lou Dobbs, the issue is virtually ignored on cable “news,” and, on network TV news, the embargo is total.
